doing a format of my hard drive and starting again from scrath didn't fix the problem.
most times when i try to start my computer i get lots of graphical corruption. it happens on the boot screen and through all the way to windows desktop. while in the windows desktop the computer tends to be quite slow and often the monitor switches off and on.
i tried ceaning out my computer and and reseating all the components but this had no effect.
i have to try booting my computer multiple times for it to start working. sometimes it works of the first boot.
once it loads fine the computer remains ok for a while (can be more than a hour or as short as 1 minute) and then the corruptions happens.
i haven't seen a fixed trigger but some have been :-
- right clicking on the desktop.
- opening up a second browser (either mozilla firefox or internet explorer. either one can cause it).
- opening up a web page.
- one of them used to be the game
- watching a video on windows media player. (didn't happen with divx yet)
either something has become corrupted or some piece of my hardware has possibly died on me.
the problem started when my game crashed a few times.
